Make It A Spritzer!
This recipe is so simple and lovely, you can make it anytime you need a refreshing drink to sip. But it’s also festive enough for holiday parties. The perfect, colorful, healthy mocktail. If you prefer to make it bubbly, add sparkling mineral water , instead of flat water, right before serving.
A NATURAL NO SUGAR OPTION:
This recipe can be sweetened with sugar. If you use sugar I recommend caster or baker’s sugar. It dissolves much quickly and there is no need to make a simple syrup. And for our carb watchers, I offer a natural refined sugar free sweetening option. In place of sugar you may use liquid stevia drops or stevia powder. <—I use this brand. Simply sweeten to taste!
